We’ll meet one last time this Tuesday.
We’ll begin our class with a final seminar discuss on our three final readings. The first is “‘When History Awakes’: A New Beginning,” the concluding chapter of Robin D. G. Kelley’s Freedom Dreams: The Black Radical Imagination (Beacon Press, 2002). The next is an article from Lena Palacios titled “With Immediate Cause: Intense Dreaming as World-Making,” published in Abolition: A Journal of Insurgent Politics. Finally we’ll read “Epilogue: Abolitionist Imperatives” by Dylan Rodríguez, the concluding chapter of his new book White Reconstruction: Domestic Warfare and the Logics of Genocide.
After our discussion, I’ll share some final thoughts for us. We’ll also use some class time to complete course evaluations.
FINAL ESSAYS (due Monday, May 10)
Our Final Essay assignments are due the first day of finals week. You should turn in your essay to our Sakai drop box no later than Monday, May 10 at 8:00 p.m. (PDT). The essay MUST be saved as a PDF file and named, your last name (or names), dash, “FINAL,” dot “pdf.” In other words, mine would be named: “SummersSandoval-FINAL.pdf”
The essay should be at least 10 pages in length, written in accordance with the “Writing Guidelines” [link] including properly formatted footnotes and a complete bibliography (which is not part of the page count). A guide for how to compose your footnotes has been emailed to you. Footnote citations are written in a different way than Bibliographic citations. I’ll leave it to you to look up how to format bibliographies on your own.
